STUNNING surfer Lucie Donlan has proved a massive hit on Love Island – with Anton Danyluk and Joe Garratt battling for her affections.
The lads fall over themselves tonight to 'crack on' with the 21-year-old beauty as the sunshine-and-sex dating hit returns.
Asked to describe her ideal man, Lucie replies: "Blonde with longish hair… just hair, a lot of hair. Like me, he’s got to match me. Two lions together."
And 22-year-old Joe clearly reckons he fits the description, telling the boys: "I want to go get Lucie for a private chat.
"But I don’t want to be the guy to go over and be over the top with it."
Later, he does manage to corner her for a chat, only for her to ask him: "Have you ever tried surfing?"
Joe, who lives in south-east London making sandwiches and would probably struggle to identify one end of a surfboard from another, gamely replies: "I have never. I feel like I need to be taught."
However, mistakenly thinking he said: "I feel like I need to be tall", Lucie replies: "No!"
Looking a little hurt, Joe replies: "You can teach me."
But once the confusion is cleared up, she tells him: "I'd love to teach you." Job done? Not quite.
Hunky gym owner Anton Danyluk is next to move in as Lucie sits by the fire pit.
The confident Scot doesn't waste any time chatting about surfing, telling her: “My initial attraction was towards you.”
Shocked, Lucie squeals: "Oh really?"
Anton replies: "A million percent. I wanted to see if you’re attracted to me."
She tells him: “Yeah definitely. You walked in and we were all like: 'Oh my God, look at him.' You’re very good looking.”
Cornish Lucie has described herself as being different to the usual girls on the show, insisting: "I'm more into sports as well as being glam."
She used to date last year's contestant Charlie Frederick though things have clearly since turned sour with Charlie accusing Lucie of only going on the show for fame.
The Sun also revealed that Lucie has enjoyed flings with McFly star Dougie Poynter and Joey Essex.
The girls are then told to step forward if they were interested in the boy in front of them – but each boy can pick any girl to couple up with.
That means the boys can choose a girl who is already coupled up – sparking some potential flashpoints.
However, five pairs are matched, with host Caroline Flack announcing: "Congratulations guys, we now have our five couples.
"The choices you’ve just made could decide how long you stay in the villa."
The 39-year-old adds: "In your couples, you’ll spend time getting to know each other, taking on challenges together, living together and even sharing a bed together.
"In just eight weeks time, the public will be voting for their favourite couple. That couple stands to win a massive £50,000 cash prize and be crowned the winners of Love Island 2019."
However, she hints at a huge twist, explaining: "Don’t forget, this is Love Island and the path to true love is never that simple.
"There may be a few surprises around the corner and the first surprise may be sooner than you think."
Under Love Island rules, contestants can be recoupled with another Islander, either by choice or not, at a recoupling every four to five days on average.
At different points in the series, a new male or female may be introduced into the house, with the contestant left single after a recoupling is booted off the Island.
Islanders can also be voted out by the public who have the power to play Cupid by voting for a current Islander to go on a first date with a new contestant.
The ultimate goal of the show is to remain in the villa, as the winning couple will have the chance to bag the £50,000 prize money.
What they do with it is up to them – with the pair choosing to either keep it or split with each other.
Love Island returns to ITV2 for a fifth series tonight at 9pm and airs six nights a week – only taking a break on Saturdays – over eight weeks
